The empty grave [Bishop Barron Homily for Easter Sunday]

Added 30 March 2018 by Bishop Robert Barron

Many people enjoy visiting the graves of famous people, from Abraham Lincoln in Springfield, IL to St. Peter in the Vatican. We feel a sense of peace and finality around graves. But the one thing we would never expect in a cemetery is action. Yet that’s precisely what we find at the center of Christianity, as St. John recounts in today’s Easter Gospel.
